A couple movie reviews

I watched Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children last night. Square doesn't know how to condense a story into a two hour movie very well. But you know what, after Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, I wasn't expecting too much for the movie. It definitely pays off in the "Oh my fucking god, this looks pretty" department, and the fight scenes are pretty awesome, but the story just lacks.

Basically, take the short that Square made for the Animatrix, replace characters from the Matrix with characters from Final Fantasy 7 and extend it to a full length movie. Then add a couple Akira-like motorcycle scenes and a vague storyline about children with a mysterious sickness and POOF! You have Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.


Anyone that says that Super Troopers is a good movie is a lier and should not be trusted! Well, maybe I'm over-reacting a little, but 20 or 30 minutes of funny sketch comedy does not save the movie. The last two thirds of the movie were so boring!

super troopers: you're supposed to be too drunk at that point to notice!

Ah ha! That may very well be the reason.

I actually figured there was a reason I had only seen the beginning of the movie like 4 times but never had a chance to finish it.

Re: Super Troopers
Is there any merit to this movie after about 25 minutes?

You get all the prettiness and even less understanding of what the fuck is going on. Really, there isn't much dialog anyways.

I did really like the action scenes for what they were. Very pretty, and interesting to watch.
